Agencies responsible for the accreditation of professional training programs and for the oversight of health care delivery have mandated the demonstration of competent clinical reasoning.
Successful healthcare organizations prioritize improving reasoning skills and mindset attributes throughout their organization. They have learned that unreflective accumulation of experience does not naturally lead to better thinking. Progress in clinical reasoning requires a direct focus on the critical thinking processes used to interpret, analyze, infer, evaluate, and explain what is going on.
Many health science centers now demand strength in critical thinking of their graduates, new hires and current staff.
They need skilled individuals with the professional mindset and reasoning skills to deliver quality care across clinical specialties. They invest in developing employees with the work ethic and problem solving skills to support their health care mission.
They use our assessment instruments, hiring tools, and the Insight Development Program to strengthen hiring and admissions decisions, assist with curriculum development and program accreditation, and improve retention and licensure rates. Strength in critical thinking skills and mindset attributes predicts a successful transition to the workplace, leadership potential and risk management.
